Survey: Rising child care costs hard on families

According to a newly-released survey, "The Cost of Care," families are paying $18,000 a year on average for child care, which is more than many colleges charge for tuition.

The survey indicates that one out of four families are going into debt to pay their child care bills and one out of five are waiting to have children. Furthermore, the survey says almost half of parents have to work harder to keep up with the cost of child care.

There is a growing sense that the U.S. should follow in the footsteps of other countries and subsidize
child care.
